Hey, remember this post? Well, yesterday I gave notice at my current job, and am starting a new position in 2 weeks.
I’m really, really excited. One of my big goals this year was to both figure out and further my career path, aligning it more closely with what I love doing – connecting with people online and writing, with the added benefit of being at a socially & environmentally conscious company. This new position allows me to do all that, and I can’t wait to dig in.
It feels good to be moving to a larger company as well – I’ve really enjoyed being at a small creative agency, but as it turns out, I also love the stability and the support a larger company can bring. I think it will really help some of the doubts I’ve had about Vermont and make it feel less isolated here. Does that make sense?
This morning the café was playing Nick Cave and the woman in front of me in line was carrying a Goyard tote, and just for a minute I could pretend I was in civilization and everything was ok. That comfort was a little startling – summer in Vermont means being swept up in the green, warm days, grass under your toes. But in the bleak winter? I guess I need more trips into the city!
So March is in like a lion for me – I’m feeling good about my goals this year so far. I’ve got the budget honed and have been managing money in a much more organized way, we’re signing up for a gym tomorrow (!!) and we have an appointment with Dartmouth Hitchcock (the big guns) next week to talk about next steps for infertility stuff. 2013 really feels all about mindful, organized action for me, but maybe that’s just what happens when you settle down. Or, you know, get older and smarter. I’m so impressed by the ladies who jammed on all this at 25. What’s up, late bloomers?
